Good looking guy and disgusting words

Last week when I was walking my dog I got street harassed by 2 guys in their early 20’s.  They looked me up and down and up and down as they passed me but they didn’t start saying anything until we had already passed each other.

Then the one guy said, “I could lick your Ass all night long, that Ass is so fine.”

I didn’t know what to do because they had already passed and so I tried to ignore it.  Then because I didn’t say anything he screamed out, “Did you hear me?”

Then he screamed, “I could just Fuck your ASS all night long.”

He was screaming things to me all the way down the street until I couldn’t make out what he was saying, but he was still saying stuff.  He looked like a normal, good-looking nice guy, but he was so disgusting with his words.  It really did shake me up.

I came home and called my boyfriend.  I told him what happened and he said to just keep my mace in my hands if it happens again.  He thought I did everything right by not saying anything since they had already passed.  I was so angry, I felt so degraded and humiliated!  I am so much older than they are and it is so disrespectful to speak to me that way!  It is total daylight on a Sunday and I am walking my dog, right by a Fire Station.  I know I can always run over to the Firefighters though and that is why I walk my dog where I do.

    I’m a CA native, but I’ve been living in DC these past 4 years, and I’ve received similar comments on a near daily basis.

    What I can tell you is this: Almost every DC cop I’ve talked to about the pervasive problem of street harassment has encouraged me to call the police when this type of thing happens, and embellish the story. i.e.) Call the cops, tell them that a man is *following* you and making *threatening* comments like “I’m gonna come fuck that ass!”, rather than simply stating that a man passed by you and made a comment about your ass.

    The first few times, I was shocked to hear police officers encouraging me to lie. But the thing is, they WANT to bust these types of guys, they just can’t based on simple, verbal harassment. The next time something like this happens to me, I fully intend to take the advice of these officers.

    Whether you are comfortable with that tactic or not, I encourage you to always carry mace or pepper spray with you. I don’t leave my house without it. And don’t carry it in your purse, either: Keep it in you hand any time you are walking alone.

    I’m sorry this happened to you– Every time I experience it, it leaves me feeling disgusting for days.

    Hang in there, and be safe!
